Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)

Our 4 room apartment, the first floor of the 1879 historic home of Allen Avery, allows you the opportunity to get away from your every day routine and find yourself only one short block away from the gateway to what has been aptly named Mystic Coast and Country. With beautiful hardwood floors and lots of sunny windows, this can be your home away from home for a short stay or a long, lazy summer. Located in the historic district, you can stroll amongst the other historic homes or shop and dine in the heart of downtown Mystic. You can walk across the historic bascule bridge and rent kayaks or canoes to explore the Mystic River, watch the 100 year old Sabino steam by going to and fro from Mystic Seaport or be on board the Argia as she passes under the bridge and gets ready to set sail. But be sure to enjoy an ice cream cone on the walk back home.

You can use the fully equipped kitchen to whip up a 5 course meal or grill up the fresh local catch of the day on the brick patio, ending the evening at the nearby pub or one of the theaters. The off-street parking area is surrounded by unique perennial gardens to be enjoyed by all and the house is both child and pet friendly, with some owner discretion with regards to the latter. It is a non-smoking accommodation and property.

Window air conditioners and ceiling fans cool things down in the summer and a powerful gas stove in the living room as well as electric baseboard heat keeps you warm when the temperatures start to drop. The apartment easily sleeps 6 with a king size bed in the bedroom and a double bed futon and full size sleeper sofa in the living room. The dining room accommodates 6 at the table, while the kitchen is eager to host a cozy breakfast, lunch or dinner for 2. There is one full bath. The layout of the apartment easily adapts for a family, two couples, or a girls’ only getaway. There is a flat screen TV, DVD, and stereo in the living room and another flat screen TV in the bedroom.

About The Owner

We live nearby and frequently complain to each other that there are so many things to do that it is hard to choose! We hope that you will have the same problem and would love to help you customize your visit to take advantage of all the opportunities this region can offer: history, art, nature, culture and theater; entertainment venues and outdoor activities of all sorts.

Or if you are a lighthouse lover, there are more than half a dozen lighthouses to be sighted off the shores of southeastern Connecticut as well as several places on shore in Stonington, Mystic, Groton and New London to go to learn about them up close and personal.

We love to travel and experience things as a native and want to offer that opportunity to our guests as well.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2010

Great place to stay. Other than the moldy throw carpet in living room (we recommend tossing or doing a proper cleaning of it)it was super cozy, GREAT location, well equipped and cute!

Owner's Response: The moldly throw carpet is apparently a new issue - but with the high humidity levels we've been having, it's not a surprise - and it will be dealt with post-haste!!

The best central mystic rental!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our entire Mystic vacation based right in the center of town. The apartment is large, charming and perfect for small groups and families. There were good bed options (2 pullouts, futon). Anne-Marie was a very helpful host detailing the ins and outs of herproperty and our daughter wanted to adopt her! You probably should stop your Mystic rental search here because it's perfect!

Walk Everywhere!

  • 5 of 5

We rented for the Month of July staying mostly on long weekends and really enjoyed the apartment. It is right downtown and this lets you walk everywhere easily. 90+% of all restaurants are a 5 minute walk or less. Also, a walk around the block takes you through the finest historic home district in Mystic, absolutely beautiful. Anne-Marie is a great landlord and has the place stocked to the rafters with every conceivable thing you will need from 2 sets of dishes, kitchen gadgets, even cloth napkins and placemats. Also every cleaning supply, personal toiletry, extra towels etc. etc. Being there a month, we got to know Anne- Marie and she is right on top of everything. The apartment is clean and comfortable. This was a great base for our vacation.
